2-13-2017 What Love Is
“By this we know love, because He laid down His life for us. And we also ought to lay down our lives for the brethren” (1 John 3:16 NKJV). Love is not flowers, candy, jewelry, or sex. This verse both defines and describes what “love” is. It is a voluntary choice and a commitment. Jesus chose to obey God and die for us. In Wyoming, Illinois, on January 30, 2017, Shelby Ann Carter, forever age 21, strapped her 12-day-old baby in a car seat, broke the 2nd story window of the burning house, and, with her dying breath, tossed her baby to safety. Shelby Ann died of carbon monoxide poisoning. Her mother’s love placed the baby’s safety above her own. Since Roe v. Wade, with Planned Parenthood’s propaganda, 59,000,000 babies have been slaughtered in America–without love! Shelby Ann should be the hero of all women who conceive.
